Activision is slowly but surely expanding the Call of Duty: Black Ops theater. In May, USA Today reported that the Treyarch-developed first-person shooter would arrive for the Wii, complementing previously announced versions for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Now, Activision has confirmed that a "companion" version of Black Ops is headed to Nintendo's DS as well, joining the other versions at retail on November 9.
Developed by n-Space (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized), Black Ops on the DS will feature many of the same connected gaming experiences that gamers can expect from the console and PC versions. Namely, the portable Black Ops will offer two-player co-op as well as online competitive action for up to six. Single-player missions will also be augmented by Arcade and Challenge modes.
According to today's announcement, the DS game's storyline will see players assuming the role of a CIA-backed operative. A time period was not specifically mentioned, though it will likely share that of the other versions, which take place during the Cold War. Treyarch has been stingy with story details thus far, but the console versions will apparently feature such loaded locales as Cuba and Vietnam.
